SHEFFIELD, IOWA, U.S. — Sukup Manufacturing Co. announced on May 29 that it has formed a partnership with OPIsystems, a supplier of grain management and monitoring technology.

Sukup now exclusively offers OPI’s Advanced Grain Management technology to its dealers, and recently introduced its platform at a dealer event in Sheffield, Iowa, U.S.

“Sukup is a company that is embracing the use of technology in agriculture, and in fact, we create some of our own control systems in house,” said Matt Koch, an electrical engineer at Sukup. “However, we feel that grain bin sensors are highly specialized and an important investment for our customers, and that OPI creates the best grain monitoring system on the market.”

We are pleased to have partnered with OPI systems, and we feel their technology will help provide peace of mind, increased storage optimization and aid in loss prevention to Sukup customers.”

OPI’s platform allows farm and commercial producers the ability to remotely monitor and manage real time conditions of stored commodities within their bins.

“We are excited to announce our recent partnership with Sukup Manufacturing,” said Marco Hunstad, chief revenue officer at OPIsystems. “This partnership supports Sukup’s continued advancement of value added and innovative solutions to the industry by promoting and offering OPI’s Advanced Grain Management technology through its extensive dealer network. Working with the Sukup team will continue to strengthen OPI’s position as the leader in the global market for advanced grain management and optimization.”
